    Default Sergeant (W/O) J.A.A. Luck, RAF 524114, 17 sqdn

    I am looking for the whereabouts of sergeant J.A.A Luck, who was shot down over the south of the Netherlands on may 11, 1940, while flying a Hurricane of 17 spdn. He survived and became a PoW in (among others) camp Kopernicus. He was promoted to Warrant Officer on 2 may 1943.
    If any of you have information on his full names (I only have the initials), and place and date of birth, please let me know. I also would like to contact any living relatives.
    Secondary question: it seems these PoW's were interrogated on their return from captivity. Do (for instance) the National Archives keep records of these interrogations?
